Emerging From a Sewing Black Hole

I'm pleased to announce that I have two, yes TWO extremely exciting tidbits of news! But don't go holding your breath or anything, because I'm not quite ready to spill yet...

Don't worry. You'll be the first to know....

In the mean time, I've been sewing my little fingers off and trying not to go too crazy buying up all the delicious new fall fabrics.
Check out this little custom lovely:

one of the cutest, brightest messengers to leave my machine in a while!

Unfortunately, there have been several casualties of the current sewing mania here at Splatgirl Creates, not the least of which is cooking. I know we blazed through last weeks' farmshare in record time, but I can hardly recall what became of it other than a some delicious bacon, mizuna and yellow tomato sandwiches and a little impromptu fun with beets and the mini-mandoline:
Beet Carpaccio with Goat Cheese and Arugula

I made it minus the endive, and the arugula from our share was a couple of weeks shy of baby, but it was delicious anyway. Besides, it's impossible to go wrong with goat cheese anything around here. I'm learning that it's also hard to go wrong with anything beets, and still finding myself wondering how I made it this far in life without ever really getting to know them.

Love the colors on this - awesome!

I am in love with goats cheese after trying it for the first time this year! Beets I have always loved...
